Making brats on the fire pit? Give it a little extra kick to impress your friends or family during your cook out. I’m sure you’ve all heard of beer brats—brats soaked in beer? Here are a few varieties to give your brats that moist, zany taste!
Spicy Beer Brats
In a large pot, boil 4 cans of beer and a large diced onion (preferably red onion). Submerge the brats in the beer mix, and then add red pepper flakes (about a teaspoon and a half), garlic powder (1 teaspoon), and salt and pepper (follow your heart). Reduce heat to medium and cook for about ten minutes, then, throw those brats on the fire pit grill! It’ll only take 5 to 10 minutes to cook, then you can serve the brats with the beer/onion mixture served over the top, if you so choose.
Dark Beer Brats
Get a good dark beer (aka Guinness), and fill a pan with about a pint of beer per 6 brats. Add a teaspoon and a half along with 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a low. Cook for 5 minutes and then transfer to the grill. Grill for 10 minutes or until evenly browned, and then serve with a nice brown mustard.
Sour Beer Brats
Get a 6-pack of light beer for a couple of packages of brats. Pour beer into a pot with half a jar of sauerkraut and a few teaspoons of garlic and salt. Boil for 7 minutes and then transfer to the grill. When evenly browned, top with remaining sauerkraut, diced onions, and a spicy brown mustard. Yum!
